    Data configuraton details ..

    To do data logging with Drop Fenix you need to do the following ..

    - Connect your Fenix to your computer via your USB charging cable.
    - Navigate to the Garmin\Apps\Logs folder
    - Create a text file named the same as your Drop Fenix program file. See details below.
    - Exit .. and enjoy.
    - Your Drop Fenix data will now be logged upon exiting Drop Fenix to that file.

    Note .. the data is in the following format (CSV format):

    2016/12/28 2:22 PM,173,154,143,135,129,120

    The data is as follows ..

    Date Time, Starting Heart Rate Value, 20, 40, 60, 80, 100 and 120 seconds heart rate values.

    If there is no heart rate data captured .. it will show as zero, ie if the program exited early.
    You can use a program like Excel (or any of your choosing) to analyze or manipulate your data should you desire.

    Note .. DO NOT delete that file, as the Fenix will not recreate it, but will skip the data logging if it is not there. You should not have to recreate it if the Drop Fenix version changes as the program name should remain the same.

    Re the Drop Fenix file .. when you connect to your Fenix, it may look like this. The photo below is the Garmin\Apps folder. Note the NAME of the Drop Fenix prg file as you will need this for your data logging.

    Note ... this is a screen shot from the Vivoactive HR version of Drop as I do not own a Fenix so your folder contents may be a bit different. The concept is identical.



    You need to name the text file the same as the PRG file for DROP FENIX. The best way to tell which one it is, probably by the date / time of your DROP FENIX install.

    So for the above .. you would need to name your data logging text file as 6ASI1701.txt
    This text file goes into the GARMIN\APPS\LOGS folder

    The steps we go through for our data.
    Enjoy

        New Drop Fenix version released today ..

        Just fixed a bug on the Drop Fenix application where it would crash when you started it. It was my fault and I do apologize. As I do not own a Fenix .. it is tough for me to know about these things.
        It was as a result I imagine a recent new Garmin firmware release. The error should be: ERROR: Too Many Arguments Error
        If you have the above error .. please upgrade to the latest version. If you still have issues .. please let me know via the Contact Developer link on the download page.

        Thanks

            New application today .. Drop Fenix 5 for the FENIX 5 and FENIX 5x.

            Ask and you shall receive .. it is done.

            Note .. I changed Drop Fenix (as well as in Drop Fenix 5) to only export HR Recovery data to the text file once you hit the 2 minute mark.
